Breastfeeding is such a precious act. It’s more than just a mother feeding her child — it’s one of the best ways to build your bond with your little one too. There may be times when you feel like the luckiest person in the world while holding the most precious bundle of joy in your hands and feeding them. But that’s just one side of it. Breastfeeding has its hilarious, painful moments too!
We’ve got a bunch of breastfeeding memes that convey precisely what nursing mothers experience. Your experience with breastfeeding gets a whole lot better when you can laugh about it. So, let’s get started with these breastfeeding memes that depict the funnier side of motherhood:
It’s incredible how much power our little munchkins possess. They may look like delicate cherubs, but you won’t exactly feel the same when they’ve got your nipple in their mouths and decide to, well, pull. It’s probably one of the worst parts of breastfeeding because you cannot possibly whack your precious little bundle of joy when it happens. And no, you can’t exactly pull your nipple either, as it may make it worse. The real unlucky ones are those whose babies have started to grow teeth… we feel you, sisters!
Ever tried making that transition from breast to bottle? You eventually have to, so you’ll know what we’re talking about when you get there. Babies can be such fusspots when it comes to milk. They just know when you’re giving them baby formula or any other milk as opposed to yours. Most babies hate anything that isn’t momma’s! It’s essential to be patient with your little one when you’re trying to wean them. It will take time for them to get used to something different, so don’t lose your mind over it.
You may be amazed at just how much milk your baby is capable of drinking. Truth be told, a baby can feed anywhere between eight to twelve times a day! It will be challenging to figure out exactly how much milk your little one is drinking when you breastfeed them but know that it is what your baby needs. Breast milk or baby formula is their only source of nutrition, so as long as your baby is feeding well, that is a good sign
Honestly, we really must give such people a hard time. While the world has progressed in so many ways, it is sad that people have so many reservations and judgments about breastfeeding. Breastfeeding, even in public, has to be normalized. We all know that breast milk is one of the most nutritious foods you can give your child. The very act of breastfeeding is so precious. Yet, people find a way to stigmatize and turn it into something to be ashamed of! It’s high time we put an end to such an attitude!
You lose the luxury of sleep when your baby arrives. A full night’s sleep can only exist in your dreams (or shall we say “daydream”?), and there’s no night where your baby doesn’t wake you up for a midnight feed. But you’ll know that this nightly interruption is a good thing. Nursing moms will know how uncomfortably full your breasts can get if the little munchkin has decided not to feed for a while! If you do find yourself in such a situation, get hold of the breast pump. Expressing milk can help relieve you, and you can always feed your baby the expressed milk for later.
No matter how much we crib about the constant demands for a feed, the stain on our tops, leaky breasts, or the cracked nipples, we’d do it all over again so our babies could be healthy and happy. That is, perhaps, the beauty of the mother and child bond! What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments below!
